Court documents reveal Smith preyed on sex workers, with victims meeting him at his apartment. All three say Smith pulled out a knife, blocked the doorway, and demanded that they take off their clothes and have sex with him.

Smith previously pleaded guilty to shooting and critically injuring a woman in her home back in 2010. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison with two years probation in that case.
